Customer Question
Second opinion] 2005 f-350 diesel...
Second opinion] 2005 f-350 diesel. The heater will blow hot all the time, even though I replaced the electronic blend door actuator. I took the cover off of the heater, behind glove box. Watched the controls and the flap will not move, stays in open position all the time. The rod moves up and down when turning the knob from heat to cold. Flap stays open. How can I get the flap to close with controls

You requested me to help on the same concern I just provided the diagnostic steps on. You said not much help?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
